I just spent 2 nights in a hotel room w/ my 2 month old, my 2 year old, and my 3 1/2 year old. I was super stressed about it, but it ended up working out great. We weren't able to get a suite, but we did have an adjoining room where my parents were staying. We put the baby in his swing (where he always sleeps) in the far corner so he wouldn't wake the others when he woke up to nurse at night. DH and I got the bed, my 3 yo got the small pull out bed that was in the love seat and my 2 year old slept on a bed made of 3 blankets on the floor next to him. I brought box fan with us b/c it gets way louder than our white noise machine. We were away for a wedding so both nights the kids were up later than normal so they were tired when it was bed time. they all went down fairly easily. When the big ones got up in the morning I took them to breakfast while DH stayed w/ the snoozing baby. At nap time the baby and 2 yo slept in their beds while the rest of us hung out in the room next door. If you're driving, I suggest taking anything you might need to be comfortable. (like a big baby swing and a box fan) :)


Getting a suite is the best plan, but when we haven't been able to do that, I've put one pack-n-play in the bathroom and the other in what is typically a closet "nook/cubby" area. Not ideal....but at least it gives the kids and us some separation. However, more often than not, we are forced to turn off the TV so the kids can fall asleep so it's a good opportunity to hit the hay early...an opportunity that rarely presents itself at home, even if it is only 8pm.

Well, this was posted while we were on vacation with our 3-yr-old, 1-yr-old, and 6mo-old! Here's my big tip: once they're 1 or so, switch to TENTS. Like the Peapod, for a brand-name version, but there are many different ones available now. They provide more structure (less running off! you can zip it if you need to!) for kids, more security for them (because of being enclosed), more privacy (blocked vision), they quiet noise, and go on the floor (often with air mattresses included, or you can use folded over extra blankets, which hotels nearly always have). They pack up TINY as well. Much, much better than a pack-n-play. We've been using them since our eldest was 1, and our kids love them. I love that I can easily hear if a child is climbing out of them, compared to a bed or plain floor mattress, but they don't actually keep the kid completely restrained like a play yard.


When we go away we either stay at Embassy Suites or we go to vrbo.com and find a rental house. You can usually find a house for the same price of a hotel. Obviously the house option is our favorite for several reasons. We found even though Embassy Suites is very family friendly we still had people bangning on the wall in an attempt to help our youngest fall asleep :) Our favorite options are 1. House 2. Condo 3. Hotel. One thing we found really important regardless of where you stay is to be consistent with your nighttime routine.
